    Nitric Oxide?

    Anyone else take NO2? Started taking it for lifting, but i have found that it does help a little on the bike and running. Also which supp. do you take? I personally take MRI's NO2 (mainly because i have had great success with their other products like CE2)

    On a side note, i have heard really good things about Cytomax. Is it worth the money? Or should i just stick to H2O?

    Supposedly it keeps vessels dilated and open, (like Viagra.)

    I take the amino acid precursers I think. Some Nobel prize winning doctor has his own brand, I need to read the label. (Dr. Murad) "Cardio-Discovery" Costco


    here it is if you want to mix it yourself
    1. Take 4 to 6 grams of l-arginine, 400 to 600 grams of l-citrulline, 500 mg of Vitamin C, 200 IU of Vitamin E, 400-800 mg of Folic Acid, and 10 mg of Alpha Lipoic Acid before you go to bed.
    2. Take the l-citrulline together with the l-arginine because l-arginine is not as effective without l-citrulline.

    My gut reaction is that this is a bad idea. Cyclists use coffee, espresso, a good capuccino...

    You should be able to find a single serving packet of Cytomax to try it.
    One thing about buying it in quantity, where you are it won't take forever to go bad.
    We are as gods, we might as well get good at it.

    Aside: I know they call it Nitric Oxide, but shouldn't it be Nitric Dioxide?

    NO = Nitric Oxide
    N2O = Nitrous Oxide
    NO2 = Nitric Dioxide

    Picky picky, I know, but there is a Nitric Oxide (NO) that's used in certain hosptials for medical reasons.
